Current Weight:(25 Nov 14) 267.0 lb
Goal Weight:150.0 lb
following: crazykatz's own diet
performance: losing 2.3 lb a week

I’m a divorced mother of two amazing and beautiful children, Jade and Devon, and am in a wonderful relationship with a man who is an unbelievable partner and completes my life in a way I didn’t believe was ever possible. Life is truly fantastic; my weight and current health...not so much LOL

A paralegal working for a local law firm that practices in many fields, I find myself glued to my desk and phone for most of my day. Quitting time comes around and then it’s out the door to jump in the car, pick up the kids, and head home where we then juggle the whole make dinner, help with homework, do laundry and relax routine.

Hmmm *looking at that cray cray schedule* ok but where the hell is the time or energy to work-out? LOL I know I need to do it but WHEN is the big question. I’m so drained and tired by the time I get off of work. Then totally wiped out by the time I get the rest of the nights stuff done and out of the way. I’m now on blood pressure meds for all of my bad habits. So with my boyfriend’s help, stuff is getting done earlier as he stresses the importance of a decent bedtime and getting adequate sleep. I’m now doing morning walks before I start my day off at work and make sure that when lunchtime hits that I don’t work through it but instead take another walk and do some resistance exercises and fulfill any challenges that I can during that time as well.

Previously diagnosed as Pre-diabetic, I am waiting on the most recent labs to see if anything has changed or not; the good, bad or the ugly LOL. My mindset is positive and solid: I AM going to drop this weight, and I WILL get healthy for myself as well as for my family. I'm interested in meeting like-minded individuals for support and insight as I make these changes and make a new path for myself in my life.

Start weight: 286 - 10/16/14
My current goals:
1st: 275 - reached 10/29/2014
2nd: 250
3rd: 225
4th: 200
5th: 175
6th and Final: 150

What is too low for your RDI? Feeling tired and caught a cold.
From all my research and my doctor it is my understanding that we are to never go below 1200 calories a day so as to not lose muscle and also to make sure we do get proper nutrition.

I'm 257 pds and eat 1300 approximately each day. My RDI was supposed to be 2000 according to FS. yes I have been losing weight and eating extremely well. Wink

Hi to the site and looking for buddies
LOL oh boy kmg do I hear ya on getting that walking and exercise done first. If I sit down I'm screwed!! It's going pretty good...definitely like you wish it were moving faster just for the plain fact that I've been at work since before 7 ;( ready to go home, get my stuff done and then just have dinner with the family and relax. Since no school or homework needs to be done for tomorrow we are gonna sit back and watch a nice family movie. Have a blast this evening!!!

in need of a diet "sage"...
Hello 42in33.

My thoughts are this: firstly it's important you find out why your doctor gave you the diet he need to know what your restrictions are, if any, and the reasons behind it. Was it whim...a test? What? Many medical conditions are affected by our "diet".

Secondly, I'm a firm believer that calories in/out is the most important...then tweak what you need to in order to deal with any restrictions, etc.

I'm pre-diabetic so I'm low carbing but I have to watch my calories. So I up my protein. If you stick to your 3 lil meals a day plus snacks I don't believe it really matters when you eat the biggest meal. Some do so in the morning so they have throughout the day to burn it...some do it in the afternoon so they aren't weight down with it for dinner time and it doesn't collect before bedtime...and for many others it's just not a worry for them. I kinda bounce around on mine...sometimes it's dinner, sometimes lunch. Smile Lately I swear I’m eating like a lil piglet...takes a while to eat my meal and then it’s snack time and then lunch, etc LOL but I’m never hungry and I’m losing weight. Do your research, find out what works for you best (of course, this is after talking with your diet). Very Happy

As far as anything else, I think it most important to remember that no matter how you approach things that you realize that this is a lifestyle change and not a "diet". Even once your goal is accomplished you will need to maintain it..hence lifestyle change not least this is how I see it...not sure about the others.

Make your goals reasonable and be flexible so you don't set yourself up for failure...making these changes are hard enough in the first place. Hope this makes sense...I’m a verbal person more than a writer...tend to skip ahead when writing/typing to keep up with my thoughts LMAO And I hope this, along with everyone else’s comments help. Good luck to you!
